The Motion Picture

The development of the motion picture provided a creative outlet to display popular culture as well as educational information. The motion picture arrived on the scene in 1907. The Nickelodeon theaters that arouse led to millions upon millions of people, particularly the younger generation, to flock to these theaters to engage in the art of film. The motion picture was a very successful tool in informing the public. Public service announcements advocated important issues such as women's right to vote, and child labor. The most significant fact regarding the motion picture might quite possibly be the fact that it is just as significant today if not more since its illustrious start in the early 1900's.

What happened in 1907? Why is that year the beginning of motion pictures? What about the Lumiere Brothers? What about Edison's films?

Cite your sources. What were these "public service announcements" you are writing about?
